Questions about the Markins Q3 Ballhead
Feb 10, 2008
So I'm browsing Markins' website and I'm wondering if the quick release clamp is included in the package?
If so, can I buy the Q3 without the quick release clamp? I forgot who said it, but I read that the Markins quick release clamp is inferior to the one made by Kirk. It was recommended that the Kirk 1.75in Standard quick release be bought instead.
Any comments on this? I already have an RRS L-plate for my Canon XTI. I'm assuming that once I have a tripod and the ballhead, the XTI with an L-plate will just slide into the quick release clamp?
One final questions and that is with panoramas. How does the Q3 deal with parallax? I read that it would be better to buy a separate head like the Nodal Ninja 3 for panoramas since it will effectively eliminate parallax from the pictures.
